The tears of young girls are far more powerful than the magic of an evil sorceress, the time bending action of a superstar, the combined power of comic book mutants, or the fart jokes of a Hollywood funny guy. The Fault in Our Stars, about two teenagers with cancer who fall in love, made 48 million in its opening weekend.
Take that, Maleficent, Edge of Tomorrow, X-Men: Days of Future Past and A Million Ways to Die in the West. The movie is such a weeper that you will need Gatorade to rehydrate.
